KILL THE CAR is on of the favorite events we have here at OFASTS. In this event, there will be a car, loaded with explosives located on the far side of the shooting range. Anyone who wants, can participate, and try and “KILL THE CAR”. Which basically means, try and blow it up first. It’s a real BLAST!!
And some video of them killing the car.
I miss him (And yes, a lot of these aren’t really quotes but excerpts from his novels.):
One of the few good things about modern times: If you die horribly on television, you will not have died in vain. You will have entertained us.
If you want to take my guns away from me, and youâ€™re all for murdering fetuses, and love it when homosexuals marry each other, and want to give them kitchen appliances at their showers, and youâ€™re for the poor, youâ€™re a liberal. If you are against those perversions and for the rich, youâ€™re a conservative. What could be simpler?
Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead.
In case you havenâ€™t noticed, we are now almost as feared and hated all over the world as the Nazis were.
I Love You, Madame Librarian
Doesn’t anything socialistic make you want to throw up? Like great public schools, or health insurance for all?
A Man Without a Country
From The Morning News:
So much of commerce now is blind: online shopping, tech-support in Bangalore. We hope there is a person at the other end of the transaction, but it could be a machine; often the machine doesnâ€™t seem very well programmed. The phone-sex industry, though, thrives on being faceless and intensely personal at the same time. Phillip Toledanoâ€™s new book Phone Sex (July 2008, Twin Palms) takes us into the boudoirs of nearly 30 phone-sex operators so we see their faces and also hear their storiesâ€”each operator gives his or her take on the business.
Same arguments, different war.
The Sarah Silverman one is especially interesting.
Railway level crossing in Bangalore India. People Cars,Taxies,Dogs,Motorbikes and buses are crossing. The alarm sounds. The barriers come down. Then the fun begins. “2007 update” – The junction has now closed by Indian railways on safety grounds.
From Project No. 8:
This project started with our looking for a good and simple button to wear. It led quickly to designing one ourselves that simply said OBAMA on a blue background. We wore them around and gave them out to whomever asked and kept re-producing them to keep up with interest. It was clear that there was not a shortage of support, but maybe only a shortage buttons. Good, well designed, campaign buttons.
We decided that, in addition to our own, it would be fun to invite some other designers to participate. We will continue to produce new buttons throughout the campaign, so check back from time to time if you are interested.
